Weirdest auction with "Airstream" in it's title - ever.

Is this another, more disturbing trait we Airstreamers all share?

Here ya go!

Am I going to end up like that?

By the way, have you tried my new nasal (airstream)hair trimmer? Only $19.95!

Actually, this is the coolest thing I think I have ever seen in my entire life!!!

Probably just needs an oil change and about a fifty gallon drum of Walbernize. This just might be the missing link of campers. Maybe they will find Jimmy Hoffa somewhere in there. Maybe this started out as a con-joined camper, or the earliest experiments with stem cell research, or cloneing.

This is the camper they should have given those two block heads, Paris and Nicole.

I think that Tin Can Luv oughta own this one! Ron. Tony. Where the hell are you?

Funny you should ask.

Jonathan, just before I read that you think we should have this (which actually it's perfect for my dad, he'll have to see it.....) I was thinking that the perfect addition to this jewel is a levinator (Isn't that what it's called?)..

Let's go in together!!!!!!!!LOL

Yeah, nothing like a driveshaft tunnel down the center of your camper. Rules out the Pergo deal.

I think you're missing the real significance of this fine vehicle... that's quite a steal!

This pristeen, lone example of the oft-overlooked Chevy/Airstream-knockoff collaboration in the 1950's, is actually well respected in both the automotive and film industries.

Just take a look at this still from "Frankenstein Goes on a Date." The filmmakers are attempting to make the high-foreheaded monster look more human by giving him a nifty, high-foreheaded cruiser in which to pick up girls and take them to the local pond...



More like Frankenstud, eh? Quite a sexy ride, once you get over the fact that it's completely ugly. Like Benicio Del Toro, am I right ladies?

Excellent research, Brad. Just to collaborate further: if you zoom in closely on the eBay photos, you can clearly see that the vehicle has Transylvania plates.
